feature request - pattr bindto error message


    Oct 01 2006 | 10:38 am
    Hi Cycling,
    When I try to bind the pattr object to a non-existing object, it says: • error: pattr: failed to bind to target
    I currently use pattr inside an abstraction to determine whether another patcher exists. If it doesn't, nothing is wrong. When I use a lot of these abstractions in my patch I get a lot of these error messages.
    It would be great if there would be a way to switch the message off.
    Thanks, Mattijs

      Sorry, but I don't expect this to happen until such time as _every_ Max object receives a "quiet" attribute. Which I don't ever expect to happen.
      I understand your irritation, though, and have uploaded a new object to my /share page which addresses the core issue.

      I was wondering when someone here would notice my killer peepers. Jeepers.

      Hah. Jeremy, will these become part of the main max distro, if not, what license are these released under (sorry if I havent RTFM'ed). I ask because these may be useful in a project im working on.
      Thanks!

      I could imagine rolling this functionality into one or some of the other pattr objects at some point (e.g. "exists some::object"), in the same way I envision rolling pattrmarker into some future generation of the patcher.
      So, I wouldn't count on these objects being maintained forever, but the functionality that they offer will be. In any case, feel absolutely free to do whatever you want with them for the time being. Except sell them to unsuspecting passers-by. But I don't care if you use them as components in art-is-for-suckers-let's-make-money ventures.
